Review: Daxon, Quilted Jacket

I'll be completely honest, when Daxon approached me (and many other plus size bloggers) I wasn't sure I was the right person to review the range. My first impression was that it looked a little too "mature" for my taste, and that impression, in part, still stands. That is in no way a bad thing, I think most brands lean towards a certain target market. But what I will say is that on further investigation I found they had some good basics, but maybe have a way to go until their plus size clothing range finds its feet.

I chose to review the quilted jacket, a long standing classic amongst the "country set" for many years, but this season has been revived as part of the "heritage" trend.

I appear to have applied way too much make up....

I found the quality to be outstanding, the feel of the material was great and the overall finish faultless. I particularly liked the cord detail on the collar and cuffs.



The coat is cut to be fitted at the waist, I am a fairly true to size 22 and found it to be snug, I would suggest if you have larger boobies or prefer a more relaxed fit to size up.

In terms of practicality it's a great coat to slip on when doing a bit of shopping or heading out for a walk. It's very warm and snug and feels soft to the touch.

  5. Hiya,

    This look great on you :-) And a lovely colour too as it brings out your blue eyes.

    As Joanna said, the jacket looks to be of lovely quality but for me I would prefer something a little longer.

    Interesting Daxon move though - there are a lot of more 'mature' shops, both online and in the high street, who sell excellent basic items for all ages but are being overlooked as people assume they are only for a certain age group. I for one have bought some lovely items from Roman Originals, which is another brand people think are not for younger people.

    Or maybe I am not considered young anymore!! x
